China 08 Wind Power Installed Capacity
to Top 10,000MW
Nov 5, 2008 - SinoCast
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Chinese Renewable
Energy Industries Association (CREIA) jointly announced
that China's total installed wind power generation
capacity would beat 10,000MW by the end of 2008,
two years ahead of schedule.
China is expected to sharply lift this figure to
30,000MW and 80,000MW in 2011 and 2020, respectively.
Up to CNY 34 billion or EUR 3.4 billion was invested
into the Chinese wind power sector last year, and
this industry entered into the super-fast growing
development stage, by virtue of a series of favorable
policies and a large amount of money, according
to the WWF and CREIA.
In the entire 2007, the nation's new increment
of installed wind power generation capacity reached
3,400MW, exceeding the accumulative capacity for
the ten years before. China had aggregately had
installed wind power generation capacity of 6,040MW
as of last yearend, growing to the world's fifth
biggest wind power generation country.
